One of the key sights in the city.

Visited as part of a guided tour of the City Centre with a very good guide. Without his input we may have missed much.

This place is a must see- It is in the old town very close to the opera and the palace. It is somehow hidden but once you cross the archs you will see a magnificent garden with fountains along with 4 different galeries (one of them with beautiful porcelain)- don't miss it

The Zwinger is a magical little stop in Dresden. The palace grounds are impressive enough on their own; add to that the impressive science and astrology section as well as the art gallery and you've got enough to keep you busy for hours upon hours.

Old masters gallery is pretty small- it takes just an hour to walk around without excursion or audio guide. There are a great number of masterpieces nevertheless! Didn't manage to purchase a ticket online. Was no any queue at 11.00, no one person! Nice cafe is there either with fab view.

With a collection of 20,000 to choose from, they have room only to display about 2,000 pieces at any one time. After 1962 the building was restored, and the collection taken from its secret war hide-away and replaced on display.
